Baku, January 16, AZERTAC
Red Bull junior and newly crowned ADAC Formula 4 champion Jonny Edgar will graduate to the FIA Formula 3 Championship this year with Carlin, according to Autosport.
The 16-year-old Briton's move to F3 comes after a 2020 in which he recorded six wins, five pole positions and 11 podium finishes for Van Amersfoort Racing to pip team-mate and fellow Red Bull junior Jak Crawford by just two points.
The Cumbrian also took two victories and finished fourth in a part-season of Italian F4.
Edgar recently received a taste of F3 machinery at last October's post-season test when he joined MP Motorsport for the two-day outing at Jerez.
"I'm thrilled to be joining Carlin and stepping up to the FIA F3 Championship this season," said Edgar.
Edgar's confirmation at Carlin is among a recent flurry of FIA F3 driver announcements made this week.
